My Beachbody Degree

Today I earned my 4 year Beachbody degree. 

Okay, there's really no such thing. BUT, that's how I feel today. Because...... Four years ago, today, I signed up as a Beachbody coach. 

As a new coach I remember hearing a call where someone compared building this business to earning a college degree. People invest {at least} 4 years to earn a college degree. They spend hours and hours studying late nights, making sacrifices, adopting a "whatever-it-takes" mentality to earn that degree. 

And they don't even get paid for all that hard work at college. IN FACT, most people accrue debt at college, spending a LOT of money for that piece of paper. A piece of paper that gives them the opportunity to THEN start making money. 

What if people approached Beachbody the same way? With a willingness to spend at LEAST four years learning about this, studying all you can, and giving this your all. 

I see people give up Beachbody cuz it's not a "rich quick" kind of deal, and yet they don't make money quick at college so what gives???⠀⠀⠀

When I heard the comparison between earning a degree and working Beachbody I felt a glimmer of HOPE, redemption, a second chance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

Cuz I never earned my college degree. 

At 21, during what SHOULD HAVE been my senior year of college, I was in a mental hospital. All my friends were making graduation plans and getting married and I was locked up in an institution. I was kicked out of BYU two times for getting bad grades. The second time they told me I couldn't come back for five years. ⠀

But today ---> I earned MY fancy piece of paper, my Beachbody degree. I can look back on the last four years and with a clear conscious know I have given this my ALL. I have done my BEST.⠀⠀⠀⠀

And this is my scary share.... but as of today I have earned almost 1.9 million dollars between all our accounts. It blows my mind to think about that. Adding up those numbers made my stomach flip last night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

I'm so grateful. God has been so so gracious and good and blessed me beyond what I can comprehend. ⠀⠀⠀

I had so many doubts about myself and about the future starting this business. But I kept two scriptures on my white board .... "thru God all things are possible". -and- "Inasmuch as ye keep my commandments ye shall prosper."⠀⠀⠀⠀

How those two scriptures have brought me PEACE and HOPE the last four years. And how true God has proven them to be.

As I was praying this morning and writing in my journal I was in tears, just thanking God for this whole journey I've been on and what I've learned and how much I've changed, and yes- for the income as well.⠀⠀

And I felt the spirit telling me that God has ALWAYS wanted to bless me. And he wants to bless others as well. But he can't bless us against our will!!! I blocked the blessings by my behavior for a long time. We can't do that guys!!! Our behavior and actions either allow the blessings to flow, or we block it. But I feel so strongly God wants to bless us ALL. He loves us. 

I am so so grateful for the business and the avenue it has been to see so many blessings. I am eternally in debt to God. I am grateful for this second chance.⠀

Thank you to my mentor Scottie Hobbs for showing me the way. Thank you to my team for standing with me and continually moving forward. Thank you to my husband Jayson Linford, your support has been crucial and so appreciated. And thank you Heavenly Father. I am in awe of what you have done and continue to do in my life.
